My Approach to Therapy:

"I enjoy working with clients who are motivated to learn about themselves, regardless of what particular issues bring them to therapy. I emphasize utilizing a client’s unique background, values, and strengths to help in the change process. My therapeutic approach draws from psychodynamic, sociocultural, positive psychology, transactional analysis, humanistic/existential, strengths-based, and cognitive-behavioral models.

I value being culturally sensitive and aim to make psychotherapy as inclusive as possible. I greatly enjoy working with marginalized groups and underrepresented groups, including people of color, individuals who identity as LGBTIQA, lower income individuals, and individuals who are in non-traditional relationships. I am deeply committed to providing culturally competent treatment to every person I work with and integrating my ongoing knowledge and expertise in cultural anthropology and social justice issues/DEI into my clinical work. I believe this is important for any type of psychotherapy to be effective."

Currently recruiting for an Interpersonal Process Group for South Asian Women in their mid to late 20's and 30's. Date/Time TBD. Themes in the group will include, but are not limited to, processing family dynamics and challenges, interpersonal and romantic struggles, navigating “isms” such colorism, racism, sexism and intersections of various identities, academic and career challenges, and healing from trauma. Group members are expected to attend weekly and come prepared to share personal struggles, triumphs, and to support other members. Please inquire for more information.
